Don't know why our garden is doing soo bad this year! I have done the same thing's I do every year past, but hardly worth the watering. Tomatoes are doing great, as well as peppers and watermelon. I can enter my corn in the world's smallest corn cob contest, green bean's are pathetic, as well asbeet's and turnip's. Flowers on my cantaloupe, but no fruit...zuchinni and squash okay, but not near the amount's I usually get. What's up?

It's a bad odd year for most gardens in the country. My green beans, which usually produce VERY well, gave me barely enough for 3 meals...out of 180 feet of row! My tomatoes (over 30 plants) will give me a few for salads here and there...if they ever ripen. My corn is barely forming ears right now...and I've usually harvested and preserved all of my corn by now.
I blame the odd weather this summer.

I agree! Down here in Phoenix I've been able to get some cuckes and cantelope and a handful of cherry maters. Still waiting on melons to ripen! It's time to plant the winter garden, hope we don't get freezing temp's this year.

This has been a totally bizarre year for gardening. Hang in there! Hopefully next year will be better.
